Certificate in Capital Markets
Cork Institute of Technology is pleased to announce the launch of a new short part-time course in the field of Capital Markets. This evening course will focus on developing the fundamental and practical knowledge that new or recent graduates will need to work in capital markets, treasury funds and the financial sector.
While the Irish government has targeted the expansion of the Finance Industry as a key policy objective for the medium term, many companies in Cork have issues in sourcing skilled financial services staff. This part time course aims to fill that gap.
